From Liliane, Communications Assistant:
We paid a visit to Ranger Semivumbi’s home today to tell him about the campaign to fund the critical leg operation he needs in Rwanda (click here to read his story).
Liliane shows Semivumbi the blog post.
Words could not express Semivumbi’s feelings when he heard about the campaign and the incredible generosity of numerous people worldwide who gave money to help him. I showed him the blog post, and he promised to come back from Rwanda healthy and fit.
Semivumbi is given the check for his operation.
He will be traveling to Rwanda today to meet his doctor tomorrow for the first diagnostic.He received the check for the operation at the Virunga office in Goma, and couldn’t believe that it was really happening. He will be taken to Kigali by Christian, one of our staff, who will take care of him while in the hospital.
We are so grateful to all of you who gave so generously toward Semivumbi’s operation and assure you that he now knows each of your donations. We will keep you posted on the situation when he gets to the hospital.
